Huck gets rematch with Afolabi!

Boxing fans have yet another reason to look forward to May 5th. First we got Mayweather Vs Cotto with Alvarez Vs Mosely on the under-card, and now we have Marco Huck Vs Ola Afolabi for the WBO cruiserweight title.

It will be the second time that these two fighters meet in the ring. Their first meeting came back in 2009 when Huck won a close points decision but Afolabi gave him a very good fight.

Huck will have to lose around 5 kilos to get back down to cruiserweight after his move up to heavyweight to fight WBA champion Alexander Povetkin where he lost in a fight that some people say could have gone either way.

''Now he has to lose 5 kilos. That is something new for him. He has a lot of muscles, so it won't be easy, but we will get it done during the hard preparation'' said Huck's coach Ulli Wegner.

The fight will be held in Erfurt in Germany which Team Sauerland General Manager is very happy about. ''We look forward to fighting in Erfurt again'' he said. '' Huck has great memories of the city. In August 2010, he stopped Matt Godfrey at the Messehalle.''

All the negotiations for the fight have been completed and the contracts are ready to be signed.

May 5th is shaping up to be one amazing night of boxing!
